Landmark Homes Design and Build homes are the
end result of a time tested, enjoyable system that
appeals to those who want a home uniquely
designed for them. It is as close to having your own
independent designer as possible, but with one
significant difference - we go to great lengths to
ensure that the budget set is adhered to.
Home owners are guided through the process of
developing your design, considering what you want
included and what materials and finishes will be
used resulting in a truly unique design.

This Landmark home under construction is
now at the ground floor framed up stage.
You will see the extra sized framing (150mm) to

The large openings for future windows will take
full advantage of the lake and mountain views.
The mid floor section is currently being formed.

About 40 boats are expected to race on Lake
Wanaka this weekend, in the local yacht
club's annual regatta.
Wanaka Yacht Club publicity officer Roger
North said the event, sponsored by Mitre
10, was the largest on the club's calendar
and attracted sailors from Christchurch
south, and occasionally the North Island.
Buoys would be used to indicate the course,
but the direction the boats would take
could not be announced until just before
each race, as it depended on the wind.
Eight races were planned across Friday
night and Saturday, and on Sunday
endurance races would be held, around
Mou Tapu Island for the larger boats and
Ruby Island for smaller vessels.
In a rhumb line - the straightest route a
vessel could take - the endurance races
were 25 kilometres and 6km but they were
likely to be much longer in reality, North
The Wanaka Lakes Coastguard would be
present throughout the regatta, particu-
larly during the Mou Tapu Island race,
which could become ''survival sailing''
depending on the conditions.
In the other races, the yachts and dinghies
would be separated into four divisions of
similar boats, with a handicap system
levelling the playing field.
Another division would provide an
opportunity for the skippers of Etchells to
race. These nine-metre one-design light-
weight racing vessels had become so
popular in Wanaka that the event now
doubled as the national freshwater
Defending champion Jeff Mercer, of
Wanaka, skipper of Grenade, was expected
to be up against about eight other Etchells.
A tough competition was anticipated.
Races between other popular classes,
Flying Fifteens and Noelex 22s, were also
expected to be hotly contested and the
junior dinghy sailing was always a
highlight, North said.
